Mr. Eoitok: The Eulletin of Thurs day last, in its reference to the Tug Eleu, enlightens the public on certain points connected with the business of ship repair ing which are of interest to us as a com mercial commuuity, independent of the immediate subject of tho repairs to the tii. It trys to ex plain also that the repairs to her stern "could not possibly have b?en let by contract." This statement will be at once set down by mechanics, and e?pt'cia'ly by any immediately con nected with, or owning shipping as an absurdity, and as such may bo dismissed as too silly for even refutation. ieveral vessels much larger than the Eleu, the repairs on which are of a like nature, but more dilhcult and comprehensive, have leen contracted for and satisfac torily completed in this port. As to the statement .that " sound tim Wr had to be remcveil to get at exten sive rottenness," meh is a matter of course, as in other work, and is no reason w hy the woik on that stern could not be contracted for. Now as to the cause of delay in keeping the tug so long laid up, when she might be earning money for the country. It is, according to the Eulietin, from the fact that Messrs. Sorenson & Lyle have " more urgent work on hand." Tbat is a consolation. Whoop her up yo tax payers who go in for monopoly. Can anything be more urgent, to tho public, than the service of the only tug which we have especially at this time of the year ? I beg to assert that tho repairs to tho tug could have been specified and ten dered for like other work, as the law pro scribes, and I have no doubt but tho party now doing work would have been the successful bidder, giving also as good work for less money and in less tim(j the more urgent work notwithstanding. The Kaimiloa botch was only made pos sible by time and Government money. The present proceedings in this case of the tug are likely to give shipowners here and abroad the impression that to do shipwork there is but one idea to govern the cost of repairs ; and such an idea is not going to help local shipwrights or the trade of this port. I contend, on general principles, without in this caso imputing any favoritism to the Govern ment, that all workmen qualified should have a chance to compete for public work, where the law allows. I am in debted to the Bulletin for the informa tion that the Eleu had a hurricane deck, to say nothing of her shear timbers. 1 suppose it must be a stroke of lightning rejorting. A Hawaiian Mechanic.
